Class 1

Ethical Considerations: Addressing & Preventing Microaggressions in Therapy

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM EST

Microaggressions are defined as indirect, subtle, or unintentional acts of discrimination against members of minoritized and marginalized groups. The impact of microaggressions can be more detrimental, in some cases, than more overt forms of racism and discrimination we are all familiar with. 

Unfortunately, these more subtle microaggressions are an extremely common experience amongst minority individuals today; therefore, to practice ethically, it is essential that mental health clinicians obtain the knowledge, skills and ability to both help clients navigate such experiences and prevent further harm by avoiding inadvertent microaggressions in therapy practice.

“The American Psychological Association (2003) stresses the importance of being aware of oneself as a racial and cultural being, as well as being aware of the cultural worldviews of one’s clients” (Williams, Shamp & Harris, 2017).”  Unfortunately, those in the helping profession often engage in the reinforcement of stereotypes, discrimination and perpetration of microaggressions which tend to run contrary to these professional recommendations (Sue et al., 2007).

In this engaging and interactive live webinar, participants will take a deep dive into defining and exploring examples of microaggressions and the impact of microaggressions on individual well-being.  

Through the use of video clips, discussion and reflective activities, participants will be encouraged to explore their own cultural worldview, engage in the practice of cultural humility, and learn strategies to mitigate the perpetration of microaggressions, toward assisting clients in healing from the daily experience of microaggressions.

Class 2

Cultural Considerations in BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ Youth Suicide Prevention

1:45 PM - 4:45 PM EST

Over the past several years the rates of suicide for Hispanic, Black, Asian and Pacific Islander youth have seen significant increases, while the rate of suicide amongst White youth has decreased.  Additionally, the risk of suicide among 2SLGBTQIA+ youth is three times that of their heterosexual and cisgender peers.  (Chu, J., O’Neill, S.E., Ng, J.F., Khoury, O. (2022). The Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth.)

Using the Cultural Theory and Model of Suicide for Youth participants will explore the role of culture as a risk factor as a well as a protective factor.  We will explore strategies to break down barriers, increase cultural humility amongst providers and apply culturally responsive strategies in suicide prevention.
